My oil brushes (Purdys) are starting to give up the ghost
The ferrule on one is real loose, and I'm starting to leave bristles with them

What do you guys/gals use and like?

Normally I am partial to Coronas (a firm brush for latex), but they are hard to find out here
I can get a good deal on Woosters, but have never used them before

I am open to suggestions

Thanks!

Wooster Platinums!!!!

Slick, PM me and I can probably hook you up with one to try. My BM dealer retired in Sept., and gave me a great deal to buy out his oil brushes. Not sure why I did it, as I try to dodge all oil paints nowadays. But I got a lot of them, and won't ever use most of them. I know you New England painters are a dainty lot, I got a 1 1/2" angle you might like. :laughing:

Dainty?!?!....lol...
I looked at the Wuss-tahs and don't recall a Platinum
1.5 might be good for all those old fashioned muntins (mullions)
Thanks!

They are finer, and are supposed to leave a smoother finish than the blacks
I never really used the blacks...never cared for them
The Ex Plats have a round handle... that's different
I'd give them a try though...cool
